an update, did not find a culprit in the latest scans but I suspect it came from "AdBlocker"  somehow. Thats the only program I deleted and Microsoft AV has been quiet so far

What Is Javascript Obfuscator?

Javascript Obfuscator converts the JavaScript source code into obfuscated and completely unreadable form, preventing it from analysing and theft. It's a 100% safe JavaScript minifier and the best JavaScript compressor. Javascript Obfuscator is used by hundreds of companies and individuals to protect and optimize the JavaScript source code



If the detection was related to a legitimate program like AdBlock, then it was a false positive.

Anytime a file is falsely detected (a false positive) or appears suspicious, you should submit a sample to the Microsoft Malware Protection Center research team so they can investigate and take corrective action if confirmed.BTW...you can use uBlock Origin or uBlock as an alternative to Adblock.
